Mar 15 2016 Aromatherapy for Allergies
Well, not really, but once Spring comes with its beautiful weather, for many the dreaded allergy season starts too.

And we all know the symptoms, right? Runny nose, watery/itchy eyes, constant sneezing.  The allergy alarm bells go off thanks to the dry, fine and powdery pollen coming from trees like oak, birch and ash. 

Also very important to consider is that stress is known to play a very important role in predisposing people to respond allergically. 

The aromatherapy approach to allergy is to employ essential oils that have a noticeable physical relieving effect and that at the same time are calming and soothing.  While this treatment will not cure the susceptibility to the allergen, the symptoms can be minimized or they can be more bearable.

My favorite oils for allergies are Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Blue Chamomile (Matricaria recutita)and Niaouli (Melaleuca viridiflora) and they are all carefully put together in Aromandina’s Allergy Calm essential oil and Allergy Calm Roll On.

Just follow these steps:

  • Put 3 drops of Allergy calm Essential Oil on a washcloth.  Take the washcloth to the shower.While showering, place the washcloth on your chest and allow the heat of the shower to release the vapors of the essential oil.
  • After the shower, mix 1 tablespoon coconut oil with 6 drops of Allergy Calm Essential Oil and apply with massage in the hollow below the collarbone next to the breastbone and your arms, from the wrist to the shoulder in upper movements.

  • Roll Allergy Calm Roll On on the face: the sinus area, the side of each nostril, the bottom of the cheekbones and the base of the skull.  Press these points with your fingertips. 

You can keep your Allergy Calm Roll On at hand and use it freely during the day.

While this treatment will not cure the susceptibility to the allergen, the symptoms can be minimized or they can be more bearable.

Enjoy!

It’s springtime and there are changes happening all around us – the weather is warming up and life is undergoing a process of awakening and renewal.
Although spring is always associated with positivity and freshness, the season does have a considerable impact on our mind, body and emotions.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), spring is represented by the wood element and it is that time of the year when our body is most susceptible to wind-cold imbalances that mostly affect the liver and gall bladder.

Problems like depression, hepatitis and vernal catarrh (allergic conjunctivitis or ‘pink eye’) are believed to stem from these imbalances.

The liver is the primary cleansing and detoxifying organ of the body that regulates blood circulation, hormones, metabolism, digestion and subsequently our emotions too.
In women, it may affect the menstrual cycle and reproductive health. The function of the gall bladder is to secrete bile and assist the liver in all its functions to ensure the smooth flow of energy throughout the body.
Experts believe that the health of the liver and gall bladder can affect our decision-making abilities and have an impact on the quality of life.
TCM also theorizes that anger and depression are the dominant emotions during spring that are fanned by rapid changes in the weather, environment and length of the days. It is said that these changes interfere with the levels of the hormone melatonin in our body resulting in mood swings and temper problems.
You may be suffering from an imbalance if you experience one or more of the following signs and symptoms: Inadequate sleep or disturbed sleep patterns

  • Dry, watery or itchy eyes

  • Irregular bowel movement

  • A feeling of fullness or bloating

  • Chest congestion

  • Menstrual irregularities or severe PMS symptoms

  • Mild to severe depression

  • Anger

  • Frequent emotional outbursts and restlessness

Keeping all causes and their effects in mind, a wellness regimen during the spring season should aim at strengthening immunity, purging the body of toxins and maintaining emotional balance. Essential oils, when carefully chosen and correctly used, can help achieve this goal. Here are some essential oils that are perfect for the season:

DIGESTION, CRAVINGS  AND HELP WITH TRANSITIONS:

Fennel, Grapefruit and Spearmint Essential Oils are my first options.

Fennel aids digestion and helps an individual cope with lifestyle and environmental changes.

Grapefruit acts like a tonic for the lymphatic system and the gall bladder and helps dispel negative emotions like anger and irritability.

Spearmint has a refreshing and purifying scent that uplifts the spirits.

This blend can help you resist food cravings and emotional eating.

Aromandina Recommends: CLARO Essential Oil

DETOXING AND PURIFICATION:

Essential oils  like Atlas Cedarwood , Rosemary and Fennel promote lymphatic drainage, improve circulation and release excess fluids and toxins. This takes care of any water retention and you feel lighter and more energized.
Orange Essential Oil enhances the function of the liver, encourages the flow of bile and aids fat metabolism. 
Massage all over your body twice a day for best results.
Aromandina Recommends: Detoxing Body Oil  

FEELING UNDER THE WEATHER?
The uplifting scent of citrus essential oils is just what you need when you need that quick pick me up. 
Bergamot Essential Oil restores a positive state of mind and wards away feelings of depression, anxiety and under-confidence.
The zesty notes of Lemon Essential Oil energize and rejuvenate the senses while the fruity scent of Grapefruit Essential Oil helps maintain mental, physical and emotional balance.
Aromandina Recommends: Citrus Delight

HORMONAL IMBALANCES: Geranium Essential Oil supports the adrenal cortex and helps take care of hormonal imbalances.
Clary Sage Essential Oil has a calming effect on the mind and alleviates depression and irritability during PMS.
Lavender Essential Oil helps to maintain a positive state of mind and keep your mood cheerful and upbeat.

Aromandina Recommends: RADIARE

Spring is nature’s way of celebrating a new beginning – keep your health up and your spirits high so that you may enjoy the season in all its glory.
